Start to Finish Consulting
Differentiating yourself is critical when applying for an MBA.
Many MBA candidates have solid backgrounds but few can clearly express that they have that ‘special something’ the admissions committee is seeking. In this ultra-competitive process, every part of the application—resume, essays, recommendation letters, application, and interview—must be stellar so that you can differentiate yourself from thousands of other applicants.
The complete consulting package covers everything you’ll need – and we’ll have your back from ‘start-to-finish.’ We will help you perfectly execute your admissions package, and take the next step forward in your life, and in your career.

Generating powerful ideas for tricky essay questions, and structuring your answers so the admissions committee will love them is one of the most challenging and time-consuming parts of the MBA admissions process.
An in-depth discussion with one of our experienced consultants can help you ‘discover’ ideas that can be blended into well-organized and persuasive essays. After a thorough brainstorming session, your consultant will organize your ideas into an easy-to-follow outline from which you can base your essay drafts on. After your essay drafts take shape we then start our typical deep-dive Essay Analysis & Editing process.
This service is perfect for people who are having trouble generating ideas that match the essay questions, or have too many ideas and are unable to prioritize and are facing a time crunch as the deadlines approach.

Essay Analysis & Editing
Are you a diamond in the rough with few credentials but unlimited potential and a tremendous passion for business?
The essays are channels to tell that story. Are you a top performer who has already progressed towards the mid- and upper echelon of business?
Essays are the place to highlight your successes and “make the sale.”
No matter what type of person you are, the essays provide a stage for you to shine. This is where you convince the admissions committee that you belong in business school. Our team of talented editors will do much more than make cosmetic changes to grammar and punctuation.
We carefully analyze essays paying close attention to ideas, logic, persuasiveness, and how well writers market themselves. We then deeply edit the essays and provide in-depth comments instructing the writer on how to improve points of weakness. In the end, the essays will tell a more compelling story, be more personal, and get the attention of the admissions office.

Your resume will make the first impression with the admissions committee and it will also be used when interviewers review your profile, and you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
With MBA essay word limits getting shorter-and-shorter each year, the resume has become even more critical to helping the admissions committee understand your background and key experiences. You’ll need a sparking resume to grab the reader’s attention and to give them a clear, holistic perspective of who you are before they review the rest of your application. MBA admissions committees are looking for high achievers who have made an impact at work and throughout their experiences. Besides polishing your resume content, we’ll give you tips on how to make your resume more specific, focused, and ‘results-oriented.’
Are You Ready to Answer the Tough Questions During Your Interview?
“So, why exactly do you need a MBA?” “Tell me about a difficult challenge you overcame at work.” “What do you expect to be doing in 15-years?”
Even for the most gifted communicator it takes lot of practice to deliver a great story and to answer the questions in the most compelling way. Our consultants understand the motivations behind these questions and can help you craft responses that will allow the interviewer to clearly understand your strengths and motivations for getting an MBA.
